behind the bike kids stroller (Read 892 times)

    This has probably been discussed, so forgive me for not better searching

     

    But for those of you with kids... do you have one of those behind-the-bike stollers that attach to carry kids?  Like a little wagon thing?  Is there a good brand?  A "better/safer that other brands" brand?

     

    My sister asked me.  Not because I have kids (because I don't) but because I run more than anyone she knows.  I don't have an answer for her yet, but I have you guys and gals!

     

    Thanks!

      we've tried about 3 different types, some 100 dollar jobs from target, an expense burley, and they all sucked.  My son would get too hot inside it as its all enclosed and he wouldn't have any fun.  The best one we found is:

      Its awesome, my son is 4 and loves it, but he's been riding in it since he was almost 3.  

       

      I ride it behind my road bike and my moutain bike just fine. 

        Burley.  We have an older-model D'Lite, which I suspect is now the Encore.  Works really well, our kid loves it.  You can feel the weight of it, but it's not onerous.

          Thanks for the suggestions!  I've passed them along!  The Weehoo might be a little to "big kid" for my nephew, looks like he could fall out (I think he's 2 1/2-ish).  But, I know very little about this kind of thing.

            We had a Chariot, mounted behind the bike.  Also converted to a jogging stroller.

            It was great. Comfortable for the kids. Had the two-seater which when loaded gave you an extra workout Smile

              Yeah - I still have one (although mine is Trek rebranded one), 16 years and still going strong - my kids have long outgrown it, but I still sometimes use it to bring the shopping home from the supermarket.
